Just a thought I had... which would you rather trade?

Trade a 1st round and another mid-high pick for LB Khalil Mack
OR Trade a 2nd round pick pick for FS Earl Thomas


I think I might be more interested in Earl Thomas because I think he might be the best at his position in the NFL and this defensive scheme is all about being able to coverage with the minimum number, while using tricks to get favorable match-ups up front.

I believe the Seahawks were rumored to be asking for a 2nd round pick, and the Cowboys countered with a 3rd round pick and the Seahawks weren't interested (probably because they MIGHT get a 3rd round pick with comp pick, while keeping him another season).

How old is Earl Thomas. I'd be open to that.

another aspect since you'd want to sign either to a few more years is top S money is about 13m where Mack no doubt is looking for Von Miller money which is 19m

He's 29... so two years older than Mack, but I think coverage is the most important part of this scheme... and Thomas not only has played well himself but normally has help covered up for mistakes from others too.

Another good point, possibly saving about 6 million per year right there.

And then Haha, could play SS and maybe Jones would get more time to learn Safety (and maybe be used more at coverage LB which he seemed best at, least year).

The Saints are a good team. So are the Packers. Both those #1 picks are going to be in the 20s.

Mack was a Top 5 pick. There is no realistic way that these two picks are equal to a top 5 pick, especially someone like Mack. I would take this in a heartbeat. He's a Top 3 Pass Rusher in this league, and they're hard to find.

Yes, we have Gutekunst, but still under Thompson our first round picks never ended up being world beaters--the only real exceptions being Rodgers, Matthews, and arguably Raji.

Mack would be the way to go especially with Cobb and Matthews accounting for a big portion of gained cap money after next season. Having Mack and Matthews on the same defense for at least one season would be ideal.

Question is would you pay him one of the highest defensive contracts in history though, because that's why hes on the block in the first place.

Would you trade two late 1st round picks (in a draft that is said to have a great DL/edge rusher draft class, for the rights to give Mack a 100 million dollar contract? And rumor is he wants the highest contract in defensive history.

Note, almost all defenders have struggled after getting 100 million...

DT Albert Haynesworth, Marcell Dareus, a boy named Suh, I believe all these guys failed to finish their 100 million contracts.

JJ Watt and Justin Houston are very talented players who have mostly struggled with injuries since getting the mega contract.

Von Miller has almost been the only successful ones and of course they have struggled to get an offense after paying the high priced defense, just like the Seahawks.

I think of Mack as a down lineman, but his number is 53 or something like that isn’t it? I mean, can he stand up and cover? Could he be an edge rushing OLB?

Didn't Khalil Mack make All-Pro at two different positions in the same year? DL and LB?

Man....this kind of thread is just another reason I’m not a NFL GM.
I keep going back and forth on this.

Either way, IF (and it’s a BIG if) the Packers are actually going to try to get him, it better be real soon. It would take time to get up to speed with our defense, and be able to really contribute.
More quality help on defense would be great. This is THE season to make the big push.

It’s not a question of to do it or not, to me it’s a question of value. Is he worth what we’d have to pay? Combine at LEAST a first with, whatever we have left in the cap.

That’s why I lean against it. If Clay and Nick bang into each other tonight and are both lost for the year, I might reconsider.

Alrighty then, Packers being most likely.
I seriously doubt it though.

Yes because bookies jobs are to tell you the truth and put more money back in your pockets.

They sure were correct with Dez Bryant to the Packers too!

I don't know that it really matters one way or another, just thought it was amusing. What did OddsShark post about Dez Bryant coming to the Packers? And did Dez sign with Browns or someone else?

#38 Posted : Monday, August 13, 2018 4:08:25 PM(UTC)
I'd take Khalil over Dez anyday if it was an even trade. But Dez is a free agent. I guess I'd still rather offer a high pick for Khalil than take Dez off the street. lol

I completely agree it was amusing and it was posted for fun.

I don't know what company it was, but I saw Dez Bryant odds, where the best odds where him coming to the Packers, and the comment was about bookies in general.

Maybe a single high pick... but some talk about multiple very high picks and a 20+ million per year deal. That's possible one player for the price of four.

So if one bookie says one thing, it goes for all bookies? I'm bookie ignorant so I really don't know. I thought different bookies had different odds, and that's why I asked for the OddsShark deal with Dez Bryant so we could compare them.

Zero2Cool (6h) : Not true. Just use bilasport.net
nerdmann (6h) : gonna do that dhazer, thanks for the heads up
dhazer (6h) : buy a firestick or android tv box and install Kodi and you can watch all pay per views, sports and movies you want
gbguy20 (6h) : Packers vs bears not on tv in the twin cities market....first game all year. Damnit.
nerdmann (7h) : Look for a TE in the draft. Keeo Jimmy/Mercedes/Tonyan or some permutation thereof until the new kid develops.
gbguy20 (8h) : jealous.
dhazer (8h) : Man I love using Kodi i just realized I get the football games on it for free
Mucky Tundra (9h) : Or are you talking about Jermaine Gresham? He's 30 years old atm
Mucky Tundra (9h) : Tyler Eifert would be his name and he suffered a REALLY bad injury this year
gbguy20 (12h) : yeah why not bring in another guy who can't stay on the field?
Zero2Cool (12h) : The guy from the Bengals? The TE who's alway hurt??
KRK (14h) : Yup..he's gone...they should sign the guy from Bengals at half the cost
gbguy20 (16h) : correct
TheKanataThrilla (16h) : Hasn't really opened the middle of the field either. He is basically another WR and if one uses those stats he has had a terrible season for the price paid.
Cheesey (16h) : The busted thumb didn’t help. I’d have him back only at a reduced rate. But I’m sure he wouldn’t go for that.
Cheesey (16h) : Graham hasn’t been “great” this year, only fair.
Zero2Cool (19h) : Graham is far better than 85. When both thumbs are not broken. Who ever said Rouse was better than Collins?? Never heard it.
gbguy20 (15-Dec) : no one said tonyan is better than graham but it sure seems the general consensus is beginning to lean toward cutting graham rather than paying him another 10 million
beast (15-Dec) : I like Tonyan, but this nonsense (that's growing though out Packers fans) that Tonyan is better than Graham is just like the nonsense about Aaron Rouse being better than Nick Collins in 2007...
beast (15-Dec) : Tonyan got down field once when the OL COMPLETELY OWNED the DL on one play and Rodgers and ALL DAY to hold the ball!
Zero2Cool (15-Dec) : is Tonyan faster? I'd be good cutting Graham and using Tonyan more. I've seen him stretch the field. Graham with busted thumb = terrible
gbguy20 (15-Dec) : can't say there would be much difference, aside from tonyan being way faster
nerdmann (15-Dec) : You gonna go with Tonyan?
gbguy20 (15-Dec) : the dude needs to go after this year
nerdmann (15-Dec) : Bring him back until you develop a guy. That takes a year or two.
nerdmann (15-Dec) : I look at Graham as Chmura, without the blocking.
nerdmann (15-Dec) : Dude was on pace for the all time production record for TEs, broke his damn thumb.
nerdmann (15-Dec) : 46 receptions isn't bad.
packerfanoutwest (15-Dec) : many free agents don't want to play in GB,,,and you know why. Graham played for the money
Nonstopdrivel (14-Dec) : Graham has 46 receptions on 77 targets.
Zero2Cool (14-Dec) : Graham should sit until his broken thumb is better.
gbguy20 (14-Dec) : careful rabidgopher, half the forum will attack you if you say that here.
rabidgopher04 (14-Dec) : Jimmy Graham rarely catches the ball when it comes his way.
Zero2Cool (14-Dec) : Graham: 'My numbers suck' in Green Bay
Zero2Cool (14-Dec) : @NicholasJOlson Stefon Diggs currently has 88 catches without a single drop.
